Personal Items LoominMemory By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK, (JPi— Most people would rather look backward than forward for a very simple reason. It is easier to remember where you've been than to figure where you're going. Everybody now Is taking a reminiscent, gander back a<, the last 50 years—some fondly, some sadly. And it's a popular pastime to debate what were the most significant events of the 20th century up to now. But there ought to be two such lists, One would have such impersonal things on it as the Invention of the airplane or the atom bomb—undoubted landmarks in the progress of the human race. But each man also has had the pattern of his life changed by little personal milestones, small events in the continuing story of mankind but of Standout importance to himself. The airplane, for example, has done little for me except to get me more quickly to places I usually don't want to go to at all. And as for the atom bomb—why, I probably wouldn't know it if one blew up in the next block. On the other hand, In the autumn of 1918, there occurred on the playground Grammar School a happening whole career. of the Irving in Kansas City that changed my I took on a ruffian In the second grade who was bullying some girls in the class. He threw one punch—and all I needed for Christmas was two front teeth. This made me a lifelong paclflcst, and I have hated war and distrusted the Sir Galahad legend ever since. There was a day I thought "I'll never learn to swim," but I kept on until I did. And-18 years later that day paid off. One of Gen. Patton's landing craft hit a coral reef, and I had to paddle the last 50 feet to Africa. And there was the day I came home from university and told my mother there were some students whose families did more for them than mine. She broke into tears, and I know what It must be to sacrifice for a child and have It turn out both dumb and ungrateful. I would have given my arm to unsay what I had said. Well, there were other days to do better. You have your own list, too. What's on it? But isn't it 'true that it's the little events few others remember that made the biggest noise In your life? The large events did make our century—it's the small ones that bent us to the shape we are. Ice Clogs Parking Meters, Freezes Assets Meter Maintainer Crane was giving most of his time Wednesday to freeing the slots on the parking meters from ice. Last night's storm made no exception in favor of parking meters when painting the city with Ice. Meter heads were so glazed no coins could be inserted. Crane reported at noon that he had cleared coin slots of ice on about 200 meters during the forenoon, and would attend to the remaining 100 early this afternoon. Tuesday was collection day for the meter maintainer, but because of rain he postponed removing coins from meters. Then the ice storm forced a second postponement of collecting. "It was more important to get the meters back Into shape to accept coins than to remove the receipts already deposited," Crane explained. HOOKAH 8MOKAH BANNED Ibrahaim Lahore, a Pakistan clothier, is back In Karachi explaining that he couldn't enjoy a quiet smoke of his pipe on a recent flight to London. He was politely told that his sort of smoking was taboo. Ibrhalm's pipe was a hookah, weighing 12 pounds, with a large glass tobacco bowl connected by a 24-Inch stem to an oil jar. To smoke it he drew out three feet of rubber tubing and two pint jars of oil for lubrication. He had taken it along after hearing of Britain's cigarette shortage.

WILKIE Associated Press Automotive Editor NEW YORK, Jan. 5, <£•>—Nash Motors will build an automobile to sell for $1000 or less if there is sufficient demand for it. It would be a small car—12 feet one inch long on an 84-inch wheelbase—and would use low horsepower, foreign-made engines. Nash showed one of the cars, a hand-built model, at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel yesterday and plans additional showings in Washington, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. From answers to questionnaires distributed at the same time, Nash expects to learn whether there is demand enough to warrant volume production. George W. Mason, Nash president, emphasized his company is not now equipped to build the car and probably could not get it to t he assembly lines in less t han a year. The demonstration model Is a two-door, two-passenger convertible. It is powered with, a four cylinder, 18 horsepower Italian engine. Mason said it would give 45 to 50 miles to a gallon of gasoline and have a top speed of 60 to 65 miles an hour. It weighs 1,150 pounds. The vehicle could be built, as a sports roadster or as a two-door all-steel coupe. It could be built also with a 36 horsepower Fiat engine, to yield 35 to 40 miles per gallon of gas and a top speed of 65 to 70 miles an hour. With that change it would weigh 1450 pounds. In the questionnaire Nash estimated the price of the car with an 18 horsepower engine at about $950; with the larger engine the price was put at about $1000. Nash emphasises the new car Is Issue 50 Marriage Licenses in Calhoun HARDIN, Jan. 5.—(Special.)— County Cler'.. Howard C. Sweetman Issued 50 marriage licenses during 1949. The number Is about average. The number of births and deaths in the county has not been compiled, as town, clerks have not filed their final reports. Hardin Notes HARDIN.—The Ice and sleet storm was not too hard on Calhoun County. All the school buses made their rounds and the mail carriers wore on time. Mr. and Mrs. Paul Hanks went to Jerseyvllle on a business trip Tuesday. M. O. Berrey of Batchtown was a courthouse caller Wednesday. There will be a legume-grass meeting at the Farm Bureau hall here next Friday at 1;30. The new sound picture, "Green Dollars," will be shown. Farm Adviser J. H. Allison says that the growing of legumes and grass in rough terrain like Calhoun Is probably much more Important than In more level counties. County highway workers, Harry Funk and Bernard Balke, report that little damage was done to Calhoun roads during the recent heavy rains. Funk says that the heavy downpour during the last 24 hours of the rain had a tendency to pack the rock and gravel and all well graded roads carried the runoff in good shape. Purl Smith was in town Wednes- dal. With shirt collar open and coat unbuttoned, he seemed impervious to the cold wave. \ New Industry Foreseen Malaya hopes to develop a new industry by canning Ikan kem- bong—a type of mackerel caught off its coast—for export, Singapore reports.
